The Advantages of Banner Medical Center's Bariatric Surgery Services Patients often wonder which program to go to. There are a number of programs in Colorado. Why would a patient want to come to our program here at North Colorado Medical Center? For one, we have a Center of Excellence and I believe we have an excellent program with high quality outcomes and good success with our patients. I believe that stems from my experience. I was the first surgeon in Colorado to offer the LAP-BAND® procedure to patients. Additionally, although I was a general surgeon for 16 years prior to coming to Colorado and creating the bariatric surgical program that we have, I do specialize in bariatric surgery now and I don’t do other general surgical procedures electively. And I believe that that stands us apart from other programs in the region. We specialize in bariatric surgery and that’s what we excel in. Besides my experience our staff has been with me ever since the start of the program. We have people that I have known for many years that provide excellent care to our patients and that include our two PAs, our Ph.D. psychologist, our dietician, our program coordinator, office manager. Additionally, the hospital has staff that have been taking care of our patients for many years. I believe all of those ingredients equate to a high quality surgical experience at North Colorado Medical Center.
